Whether it’s a list of blog posts, a photo or video gallery, an image slider, or anything else on a website that has multiple pages, they all have something in common: pagination, or a way to navigate from page to page. While many websites use relatively common layouts and styles for page navigation, this is an area where designers and developers can add some creativity to enhance the user experience. In this post we have compiled 10 CodePen examples of creative page navigation for your inspiration. We hope these will inspire you to try out some new tricks of your own.
